Brother Osama, why did you choose for the SMF board by the way, it seems limited, but I also got recommended to use it.

Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother mYucesan,

I chose it becasue its fonts and colors and features were matching to what I was looking for.  Plus, it was one among a few that my web hosting company offered, for free, and for a few mouse clicks (literally) that they would have it all setup for me.  I had to go and customize it a bit though.  But other than that, it's almost entirely the same as I installed it.

I hope this helps.  If you have better boards that you can suggest, then feel free to mention them brother.  With this board, I created only one Category and an unlimited amount of posts that can be created for this category.  This is where every member can create their own topics and receive replies and interactions.  I could create more categories, but I chose to lock it into one category only (the one that says "MAIN BOARD (You must register to post)" on it).  It keeps things simple.

Now, please feel free to suggest how you want the board to be like.  I hope this answers your inquiry insha'Alah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Thank you brother.

I played around many forum management systems like myBB and SMF, but also several others.
So let's start one by one.

PHPbb

PHPbb is the oldest board around the net, but that never means it is the best. I generally used PHPbb through services which installed it for me, I didn't have much experience of content management systems back then. But later on I started to install it on free webhosting services, later on paid ones, which are much better. But the most hatred of PHPbb is the way modifications are installed. You had to change the .php files to make the modification function, this usually was no problem but then after all my hard work it became nasty between us. Because the modification my whole board received an error code and I had to remove all the codes I had inserted in the .php files or replace them with the originals(or the backup incase of additional mods installed). Sooo, this all took too long and gave me a headache so we're seperated since a while now. And that proves that it is important to make a backup. [demo;u/pw=administrator]

MyBB

I can't remember when, but I think it's when I saw a website made of this board, I liked how it was organised and how it looked(however it had a additional theme) so I decided to try it. It may be another way I met MyBB but it's not important now. MyBB seemed extremely flexible but I noticed it had a limited amount of modications, well, limited, if you compare them with any other well known board on the net. Uploading mods and themes was as simple as uploading them to the server and activating it through the board. Additional changes to some .php files might require for some MyBB modifications but that depends. However, it seemed to me like most PHPbb acquired changes to .php files, I think this is the reason SMF has more modifications for it's board than PHPbb, an it's probably also because PHPbb was programmed in an old method(maybe). At the end, MyBB looked alot like SMF, but SMF had way more extensions. Maybe there are reasons to choose MyBB over SMF but I do not know them. [demo;u:admin/pw:demo123]

Simple Machines Forum

I haven't been working with SMF so much, I had installed it a several times but I didn't actually do anything with it. But after looking around for quality forums I got recommended to SMF, and I see it is also used by this website. When I asked why the person that recommended me likes SMF he said it is customisable and I think he also said it was simple or easy to use, not sure though. I said to him all boards are customisable but I noticed SMF had way more extensions than any other board I know of. But that does not measure the quality of those extensions. The thing I am disappointed with is the messaging system, it only shows the inbox, not the outbox or any other like trash. Whilst you can select to 'save the message to outbox' you can not see the outbox, how odd. But I like where the admin page is put in, it doesn't require you to open a whole new page, nor it prompts you to re-enter the admin password like PHPbb, however this is better for security. I am currently working with SMF, but I still got to figure some things out. [ugot it installed :)]

Invision Power Board

This is a commercial board, so meaning you have to pay for it. Because of this the extensions will probably be limited. I just got to say this is a very powerful forum software, but just hard to find a decent theme for it. But however I do not recommend you to buy this as it's a better use for company's.[demo]

I seem to almost exceed the 4000 characters limit(full post) so imma keep it to this.\

Selamin Aleykum,
Your Brother of Islam

Assalamu Alaikum

I have 2  points:

1- Some people I knew online before, commented on the site ,they praised it but one of them said ; that sometimes she don't like the over use of the colors and the big fonts.....
another one said ; he think some articles needs to be arranged better ,I don't know exactly what he meant by arranged ....  I remember also he said that in the middle of some articles there is much reference to other links......

now when it comes to my opinion ,my hope that one day we sections in the site with some other languages ....

I have a last question ,but about the blog ....  is there a tool of editing the posts?
also why it is that long (300 seconds) to be able to post again ?

last word .. It seems that there are some foolish persons come to spam the blog initiating threads with stupid publicity .... Brother Osama ,plz ban them...


peace be upon you...

As'salamu Alaikum dear brother Egyptian and brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity,

Thank you for the suggestion, dear brother :).  These spammers are not that big of a deal.  This board actually is very good in blocking IPs.  I get multiple selections.  This is why you don't see them attacking every hour, or even everyday.  Every few days, one spammer sneaks in and he ends up getting banned and blocked.  I don't want to restrict the brothers and sisters here from freely posting and immediately seeing their posts, yet.  I want them to enjoy the board as much as possible.  But if the situation gets out of control, then I'll enable the moderation, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

As to the the other brothers' and sisters' posts, I am currently seeing to them.  Thank you! :)

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Assalamu Aleikum brother Osama,

I sent you a PM a couple of days ago and was just wondering if it had properly been sent to you as I had encountered some issues while doing so which makes me suspect it maybe might not have been sent, or maybe got lost due to some technical issues on my end or something of the sort, so just making sure.

Let me know akhi.

Thank you dear brother for the PM and email.  Yes, I got them, and I sincerely apologize for not getting back to you.  I've been swamped with so many things.  I will most definitely use your valuable information on the 'Bee Miracle' article, insha'Allah, dear brother.  Thank you for all of the information.  I greatly appreciate it, akhi (brother).

Oh no need to apologize, I just thought that maybe it might not have been sent over to you or might have landed in your spam box or something of the sort, in which case I would have re-sent it which is why I was making sure.

I am happy some of it will prove helpful insha’Allah.

Also there are one or two points I unfortunately forgot to add (Insan is our name isn’t it :))) which I will be sending over by email in 2-3 days or even sooner when I get some time insha’Allah, you can take a look at it whenever you get some time as well or when you get to completing the article as they are just some additions I didn't think to add which are to be taken as part of the first email.

Wassalamu Aleikum dear brother.

Assalamu Aleikum brother Osama,

A suggestion here, basically I was replying to a PM earlier but wanted to add some points (in other words edit it, much like is done with the regular posts) but couldn't do so and had to add the extra points in another PM.

I was wondering if there was any such feature as editing PMs just like we do with posts on the forums?

If so I think it will prove useful with time, although if it turns out to be anything that would end-up too time consuming on your end to integrate then it wouldn't be that much of an issue honestly, it's just a minor inconvenience really.

Let me know.

Wassamalu Aleikum.

Assalmualaikom Bro Abd-Al-Rahman ,the feauture of editing PMs after sending is nowhere in any board,you know why?

because suppose you send un-eidted PM ,and the receiver  viewed his post just one second after your sending the PM .....  it means if you edit it ,he won't know about that ,as it is unusual for a person to view a PM more than once ...

May Allah bless you ....


...............................................................


I have very important suggestions to the forum:



1- there must be arrangements and order in the forum ,making sections eg:

1- clarification about Islam section . directed at refuting the misconceptions about islm, answering any question related to Islam in all of it aspects.

2- comparative religions section ,directed at other religions.

3- there must be a pinned topic on forum rules .

You should make a post on analyzing this hadith, and only this hadith
Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 648
since the islamophobes always use it to back up their claims that:

1. Arabian Women before islam had more rights than those after Islam
2. The Prophet (PBUH) has a love affair with Maria the Copt
3. The prophet changed the Sunnah to make Umar happe (I dont know where they got that from).
4. Others I cannot say.

Those who use this claim are (These are just the ones I Know):
1. Jihad Watch
2. Answering Islam
3. Religion of Peace
4. The prophet of Doom
5. Wikiislam
6. Ali ZINA (btw love the name ;))
7. Islam-watch
8. Ibn Warraq
9. Sex-in-Islam

If you do a rebuttal and refute the argument in this hadith particularly (Since they tend to concentrate mostly in this Hadith when backing up there claim), then you will refuting more than 1 person and they will have to find a different claim, which will show there incompetence.
I think it will be a great idea

Well, I won't go into much detail, but look at this article: http://www.wikiislam.net/wiki/Islamic_Prophecies:_Preservation_of_the_Quran
They say:
Quote
This claim of "fulfilled prophecy" is almost laughable! There is absolutely no evidence that the Quran is exactly the way it was when Muhammad revealed it roughly 1450 years ago. When it was revealed, Muhammad's companions memorized parts of it, and wrote other parts down on leaves, animal bones and other things. The Quran was not compiled within Muhammad's time, so there wasn't even a standardized text in existence with which we can compare. All we have is the faulty human memory (for recitations) to show us that the Quran remained as one uniform "book" up until the time of Uthman. Uthman, of course collected all Quranic fragments/writings/recitations together; those that he had access to, and decided what the "official version" of the Quran should be. He sent a copy of this "new" Quran off to each Town and ordered that all deviating copies be burnt.

There is good article on preservation here: http://www.answering-christianity.com/quran/quran_textual-reply.html

And a big page on manuscripts: http://www.islamic-awareness.org/Quran/Text/Mss/

As-Salamu `Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh akhi,

The evidence that the Noble Qur'an was never changed is logic. Ever since the revelation of the Glorious Qur'an to Prophet Muhammad (may Almighty Allah bless him and grant him peace), a great sum of believers memorized it. There was no interval of time except that a great sum of believers memorized and revised the Glorious Qur'an regularly. I don't get the point they are trying to make. Sayyidina Uthman bin Affan (may Almighty Allah be pleased with him) did not add or delete anything from his own brain. I heard that he used to read the whole Qur'an every night. He ordered all copies to be burnt because some people were either attempting to change or were making mistakes in reciting the Glorious Qur'an. If he did make any mistakes in the copy of the Glorious Qur'an, I am 100% certain that at least one of the thousands of Muslims living at his time would have noticed and informed him.

Brothers, these anti-Islam people (or whatever they are called :P) lack knowledge not just in religion, but in logic. I, and I'm sure 99% of all other people, don't even get the point they are trying to make in most of their posts. The worst part is how they show very few facts and conceal all the other relevant facts, therefore changing the whole meaning. It's like one of us goes up to a Christian and says, "The Bible says Jesus (peace and blessings be upon him) was a messenger," and completely just leaves out the sixteenth verse of the third chapter in the Gospel of Saint John (peace and blessings be upon him) where Jesus (peace and blessings be upon him) is described to be a begotten son of God.

I know that this verse is but a fabrication and is even agreed to be so by the most knowlegeable Christian scholars, but it's the point I'm trying to prove. :P
